It is probably my favorite JGB song (ironically, since I'm usually not fond of the slow pace of '76-era JGB). I don't have recommendations for a particular date, but I liked 3/6...anyway, there's only 7 or so recordings and they're all from Feb/March '76.

I am also not a big fan of the ultra slow 76' JGB,but Moonlight Mile was a perfect fit for that era JGB,and had it lasted until say the Feb.78' tour it might have found it's voice there.It is a far better song than Harder They Come,Love in the Afternoon,Sitting Here in Limbo, in which nothing ever happened,just seemingly endless riffing and repeating of the title phrase.I can't speak for the accuracy of Deadbase,but they list 10 versions,the last being played on 4/2/76 at the Capitol in Passaic N.J.

Thanks for the rec - I listened to the show this morning. I think M.M. is played more cohesively on this than on the March 6th show that had grabbed me earlier this week.
